The area of a rectangle is 20 square inches. The length of the rectangle is 1 inch longer than the width. What are the length and width of the rectangle?

  • Math - ,

    width -- x
    length -- x+1

    x(x+1) = 20
    x^2 + x - 20 = 0
    (x+5)(x-4) = 0
    x = 4 or a silly answer of x = -5

    width is 4, length is 5
